Talinda Bennington is honouring her late husband, Chester Bennington, on what would have been his 45th birthday.
Talinda shared a video of the singer dancing with their son Tyler, who is now 15. Watch above.
"Happy Birthday," she captioned the Instagram post. "You would have been 45 and yes, Tyler would have you doing this dance again! This life without you never gets easier or less painful. We miss you dearly.

"We will celebrate you in so many ways today....Tyler teaching the girls and I this dance will be just one. We love you forever."
Chester died by suicide in July 2017. The couple got married in 2006 and welcomed twin daughters Lilly and Lila. The Linkin Park star also had children Jaime, Isaiah and Draven from prior relationships.
Following his death, Talinda launched 320 Changes Direction, a nonprofit mental health awareness organisation. The website describes it as a "collection of concerned citizens, nonprofit leaders, and leaders from the private sector who have come together to change the culture about mental health, mental illness, and wellness".
Meanwhile, his bandmates Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell and Joe Hahn set up a suicide prevention site and Music for Relief fundraiser in honour of the lead singer.
The tribute comes after Talinda recently filed for divorce from her second husband Michael Fredman after a year of marriage.
She married Fredman in January 2020, after a three-month-long engagement.
"Michael and I have decided to move forward with our lives as friends. Divorce is never easy, but in our case it is for the best," she wrote in a heartfelt post to Instagram. "We have remained good friends and he continues to be an important part of my children's lives."
